The 2017 Transmission Reliability R&D Reliability & Markets Peer Review included 11 presentations on June 14, 2017 in Washington, DC. Presentations are available through the links. The agenda and list of presentations are available below.

The Reliability and Markets activity of the Transmission Reliability program researches, develops, and implements electricity infrastructure and market simulations that integrate economics and engineering principles. The activity helps to ensure electric reliability, while also improving the efficiency and economics of market operations.
